Hey everyone!

So when it comes to sewing I am very much a beginner, in the past I have been buying bits and pieces from thrift stores and making slight adjustments to fit the image I'm going for but this year I would like to try to cosplay Bayonetta from the 2nd game

I've been searching a lot on the site to try to find posts that can help and it did cover a general bit of the same info I'm looking for but I am just still confused.

I am not sure I have the capabilities yet to sew a cat suit myself, even with a detailed website that was linked in another post. Because I would also need a visual tutorial as well which I probably could find on Youtube, but I feel like a cat suit is more advanced. If I can't find a substitute then I will try my hand at sewing the suit though.

But does anyone have any suggestions for finding a cat suit that would look like the one in the photo and how I can cut out the holes on the back properly?


Thank you,
I know I sound naive but I don't mean to offend anyone by my questions.

Not gonna lie, I've been at this for years and this design makes me uncomfortable from a construction standpoint. For a beginner, I'd suggest skipping the cut-outs and going with a basic bodysuit. If you nail the decorations, shoulder/neck piece, and props I think you'd still be able to have an awesome, recognizable costume. Bonus: When your skills improve you could go back and alter the suit.

Here's an idea of what you'd want to do for the "cutouts," using nude spandex or performance mesh.

If you go with my suggestion of skipping the cutouts for now, I think these would work as dramatic base unitards.

Wow this is actually very helpful for me!! I was thinking the same thing, if I can do the "poncho" piece and accessories decently enough then I think I would be very satisfied with using the links you provided!
Yeah one of my biggest worries is not being recognizable or "good enough" since I normally just put already made pieces of clothing together and then do the props myself, so I hope I would be able to what you suggested decently enough that with the props it could turn out to be a nice cosplay! Probably not jaw dropping because I'm simply not at that skill level yet but still nice enough to be happy with. This actually helps so much give me a base to go on because I was totally clueless and stressing! Thank you!!!!!
